Buying a Wheel

I am investing in a wheel an I am looking for a show of hands. Thomas/Skutt Legend w/ssx drive, 2 year warranty or a Brent C w/ssx drive and 10 year warranty? Which is the better wheel?

I've always been happy with my Brents. They're low maintenance and are real work horses.

I have a Brent CxC and have had it for 23 years. But those Thomas Stuarts look nice!

I think either one will be great.

I've got two Brent Bs. One is older than I am and the other is probably 25+. Even those small models are fantastic and I've never done a thing to them in the 10 years I've had them.

Brent 3 - Thomas Stuart 0

Anyone else? This is really helpful. I've tried both of them and like the feel of them both and they are about the same price.

I have a Brent CXC and have had it for 33 years; a production potter owned it a few years before I did. It needed a new fuse and a belt a year or so ago. That is all that has ever needed work. High maintenance?

This one sure has been a work horse for me. I would love ANY of the others too probably!
